I just purchased an leadtek geforce2mx 400 graphics card with 64mb of ram---the box states its a GeForce2MX SH PRO but when i boot up the system it displays it as an MX MAX not an SH PRO.
Every pic i have seen on Leadteks site and others shows 8 memory chips not 4 and my cards memory chips have winfast printed on them and the SH PRO has Etrontech printed on them.
So how do i work out what card i have----i have the same coloured heatsink as the mx/max(silver) but i have only 4 memory chips like the SH PRO but the printed manufacturer of the memory chips are not the same as the SH PRO----it displays MX MAX on boot up but the packaged box is an 64mb SH PRO---all i'm asking is to help identify what card i have then i will take it up with the local dealer.
I know they are similar cards the only major difference is that the SH PRO has faster ram(better for over clocking) but i'm confused as i have not been able to find a pic the same as my card.

Do all SH PRO cards have a Gold coloured heatsink---this is what worries me the most---i have 4 ram chips to the right of the heatsink exactly the same as an SH PRO configuration.

Thanks for your time
